Shaved Parmesan & Spinach Salad
Simple and versatile salad that goes with anything.

Servings: 4

• 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
• 1 1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• 1 clove garlic, halved
• 6 ounces very fresh baby spinach
• 1 chunk parmesan cheese (enough for 1/2 cup of shaved curls, loosely packed)
• 1 teaspoon coarse Kosher salt
• Fresh ground black pepper

Place the lemon juice in a small bowl; whisking constantly, slowly add the oil in a steady stream, whisking until the vinaigrette is creamy; set aside.

Rub the inside of a large bowl with the cut sides of the garlic halves; add the spinach; drizzle with the reserved lemon vinaigrette; toss gently to coat. Divide the salad among 4 plates.

Shave the cheese in wide sheets over each salad with a vegetable peeler. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
